My question is similar to How to move multiple articles from one Gnus group to another?. However the answer given there didn't work for me.
Suppose I want to move multiple articles in a summary region to another group (I am accessing emails over IMAP), I mark all the articles in a region with
M P r to get a
# mark. Now I do
M-& B m to move the process marked articles and specify the target group.
Unfortunately, Gnus is asking me the target group for each and every article which is annoying. What am I doing wrong?
EDIT: Looks like I was unnecessarily pressing
B m as specified in the below pasted last paragraph of https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/gnus/Process_002fPrefix.html#Process_002fPrefix
Many commands do not use the process/prefix convention. All commands that do explicitly say so in this manual. To apply the process/prefix convention to commands that do not use it, you can use the M-& command. For instance, to mark all the articles in the group as expirable, you could say M P b M-& E.
While commands like expire article (
E) will need the above
M-& prefix, the commands like
B m (
gnus-summary-move-article) will honor process marks and will move all marked articles to the target buffer.
